Mission Action Statement

Engaging in welcoming, pastoral care, faith formation for all ages, the sanctification of each other and the world and support of vocations (Laity and Ordained). Celebrating the richness of care and support for each other by providing service to the poor, homeless, refugees, the sick and bereaved and the elderly and working for social justice and the protection of the environment in union with all people of good faith.

Mission Statement

We welcome and journey with all through prayer and service, open to growth and committed to building a community of Christ’s disciples who share the joy of the Gospel.

Vision Statement

Holy Family Parish is an inclusive, welcoming community of members filled with The Holy Spirit where all are valued, respected and supported. Our faith in Jesus nourished by the Eucharist urges us to bring people to him and to form missionary disciples who will go out to transform the world.

AMID the bustle of an uncertain world around us, Brisbane Catholics are being invited to visit and experience a unique overseas mission.

The Missionaries of the Poor are calling for volunteers to visit and serve in their mission house in Labuan Bajo on the Indonesian island of Flores, and to assist in the daily care of disabled residents.

It might sound like a daunting task, however, in 2017 Fr Nev Yun, administrator at the Holy Family Catholic parish at Indooroopilly, led a small group on a nine-night visit to the MOP mission, and described the richness of the experience in terms of simplicity, gentleness and serving.

From Father Nev

16-6-19 – Trinity Sunday  

Hi everyone, congrats to the children receiving First Holy Communion this Saturday and Sunday morning. Thanks to the parents for working with your children and imparting the faith. Remember parents and kids that we never stop learning about our faith in God!! Don’t forget to regularly join a parish community, keep nurturing your faith and join in the activities!! Without young families, the Church is not as rich and diverse. So we invite you to be part of our community if you’re not part of one already. We also celebrate Trinity Sunday. Can anyone explain the Trinity? A lady who is not Christian came to me after Friday Mass and I was teaching her how to bless herself. In the process I had to introduce the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It was a real brain explosion for her as I explained that there is one God and there are three persons. I went on to further confuse her by saying Jesus has two fathers: Joseph and God!! LOL It’s amazing that there are still people in the world that who do not know God in all his intricacies. What we know about God is just a tiny fraction. God is unknowable and immutable. He can’t be known fully and he can’t be changed. We have to be really careful that we don’t reach a point where we think we know God entirely. In a modernist and secular world we can think we can reason and scientifically explain everything that happens in the world and universe. When there is something that cannot be fully explained like the existence of a spiritual world, angels and demons etc, it begs the question: is God real!! God is real but how many of us truly understand this in our hearts. The only way to really fathom this statement is through faith. We can have plenty of facts and knowledge about the Trinity but do we know God intimately? Do we know why God sent his Son to die for each of us? Do we know the Holy Spirit resides and stirs within us? By faith, man completely submits his intellect and his will to God (CCC §1, #143). In order to know this God, as intended by him, we need to surrender our whole being to Him. In other words we are encouraged to experience a personal encounter with the Lord. It’s a daily and personal choice to choose God first over ourselves. For a true life of faith to be experienced we need to choose yes to the invitation from any of the persons of God to be in relation with Him. As we ponder the mystery of the Trinity, let’s ask with the help of the Spirit to be a child of God. Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
